Wikimedia Foundation projects
The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) is a non-profit that owns the trademarks to and provides hosting and technical support for many open-knowledge projects, mostly famously Wikipedia. The intersection of OSM and WMF projects is multi-faceted.
WMF projects include:
- Wikipedia: encyclopedia
- Wikidata: structured data repository
- Wikivoyage: travel guide
- Wikimedia Commons: free media, mostly images. OSM tiles can be ported to here for maps. There is an extensive WikiAtlas project there.
- Wiktionary: dictionary
- Wikiquote: quotation repository
- Wikisource: original source documents
- Wikibooks: textbooks
- Wikiversity: general learning resources. An existing resource related to OSM is Humanitarian Open Streetmap.
- Wikispecies: taxa hierarchy
Additionally, some behind-the-scenes projects include:
- Meta-Wiki: discussion about the projects themselves and larger-scale planning. See discussion of OSM there.
- MediaWiki.org: hosting for the the software and extensions to it. See Maps there.
- Outreach: a site for interacting with the public. A possible hub for posting best practices, success stories, etc.
- Wikimania: conferences intended to discuss wikis
